Cats Really Do Make TV News Better

I said it before, and I’ll say it again. Cats make television news shows better.

Daily Saba reports that TV show in Turkey’s Denizli Province received a surprise guest when a stray cat wandered on set. The critter, it seems, entered through an open door and ended up on camera.


The show’s anchor Kudret Çelebioğlu noted that the program had a “surprise visitor” and continued with the broadcast, later reminding viewers that the weather was getting colder and that they should feed strays on the streets.

In the above clip, the feline friend makes an appearance after the 1:09 mark. And of course, the cat sits on the host’s laptop keyboard.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

The fact that he can keep his composure as this kitten wanders up to him is impressive. If that were me I’d be running up to pet the cat the moment I saw it.
